Default Should I sell my Marcum?

I am torn, and have had many restless, sleepless nights, thinking,..maybe, just maybe, .I am upsetting my icefishing buddies when I use my Marcum. It really bothers me, and saddens me, thinking my Vex friends are having trouble. So a lot of times, esp. in deep water, I use it to find depth,and then turn it off, because making my friends happy, is the most important thing to me.

So,..... I've been thinking, should I buy a Vex, and keep my trusted, fellow icebuds happy?





Nah!

Ed Slayer has a Marcum and Crazy T has the L-5 and its never to much trouble but if Crazy T gets within 5' forget using the Vex they turn into a siren of red and green.

I have my marcum and would not trade it for any vex. on the market. My buddy has a vex and is always trying to trade me out of my marcum. Not a chance! Keep it, who cares what your buddies think!!!!!

As one of your loyal ice buds, I say keep it. Every year I look forward to the Marcum's interference with my Vex and how it renders it useless. I also really enjoy the sound of my own whining and crying. Still, one of the best things is that when you really want to use it all day, you have to move very far away from me and your other friends and it gives us a nice break from having to fish with you!! It's kind of fun yelling across the ice, "Hey Ed, how ya doing over there all by yourself ?"
If you do change your mind and get a Vex this year, I guess we could get used to fishing with you again.

Sounds like a vex problem to me.

I love my LX 5. When people get to close I just crank up the gain and watch them scramble.
